Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 September 2033 at 13:40.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1913".

Hunter Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2033 after 13 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 417 / 1370

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 417 of Meeus index or 1370 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 49 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠166.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠190.3°.

Moon before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 September 2033 at 01:33 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 452 km

The Moon is 405 452 km (251 936 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 444 km (252 553 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 12:46 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 8 October 2033 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

New draconic month

At 12:46 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.313°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.282° at the point of next southern standstill on 30 September 2033 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
